Rigid Rail Fall Protection For Industrial Applications

The FLS FlexRail is used in a wide variety of general industry applications. FlexRail enclosed rigid rail track provides excellent linear fall arrest capability with minimal fall distances. The FlexRail is ideal for lower working heights and light weight supporting structures, as its distributed loads are much less than those of a typical horizontal lifeline. Unlike conventional beam and trolley systems, the FlexRail’s 1:100 movement to weight ratio ensures the trolley is always overhead, eliminating potential in-line swing falls.

FlexRail Design

FlexRail systems can have unsupported spans from 6′ to 100′ and typically support 1 to 4 users or more. Parallel tracks provide bypass capability allowing workers to easily pass each other during work activities. An appropriate length self-retracting lifeline and full body harness allow workers to maintain 100% tie off from the ground up. The enclosed track design prevents debris and ice buildup, allowing the rigid rail system to be used effectively in even the worst conditions.

Typical General Industry Uses

  • Tanks inside a building
  • Flat bed truck tarping
  • Railcars
  • Ovens and process equipment in food manufacturing
  • Heavy equipment manufacturing
  • Molding machine fall protection
  • Vinyl pool manufacturing
  • Routine maintenance on elevated equipment
Quality Fall Arrest Systems

Quality Fall Arrest Systems

Only the highest quality material is used in the manufacture and installation of each fall arrest system.

  • Manufactured in our ISO 9001:2015 facility
  • ASTM A570 or A607 grade steel
  • All connecting hardware is SAE J-429 Grade 5 material
  • Each system is engineered to the most stringent engineering standards
  • All fabrication welds are subject to inspection and dye penetrant or magnetic particle testing
  • Each system is load tested as part of certification for use


Easy To Use Fall Protection

The system is completely hands-free, allowing the employee to concentrate on the task at hand. Due to the 1:100 movement-to-weight ratio, the retractable lifeline remains directly overhead at all times, eliminating the possibility for an in-line swing fall.


With each user on their own enclosed track, multiple users gain the added benefit of bypass resulting in increased safety and productivity.

Reliable and Maintenance Free

The FlexRail enclosed track is by far the most reliable rigid rail system in use today. With an enclosed track eliminating dust, debris, and ice and snow build up, the FlexRail beam and trolley system is virtually maintenance free. FLS FlexRail systems are installed around the world providing employees with best fall protection system available.


All structural components are hot-dip galvanized for added durability and corrosion control. The teflon wheels of the sealed bearing trolleys do not damage the coating resulting in years of maintenance free use. A life expectancy of 25 years, maintenance free, is not uncommon in most industries.


Combine a competitive initial cost with minimal ongoing maintenance, increased productivity, and peace of mind, and a FlexRail system may well be the choice for you.


Complies with US OSHA 1910, ANSI Z359.6 and Canadian CSA Z259.2 standards for Engineered Fall Protection.

Flexrail – Industrial Case Study

Latham Pools Case Study

Due to new operational needs, the client needed to extend the existing systems in one bay to offer further fall protection coverage for their workers. The total addition was of 250ft of Twin FlexRail.
